Saudi Arabia is the birth place and stronghold of Islam, with one of the worst records on religious freedom and human rights in the world. There are secret believers but they face the death penalty is discovered. It is hard even for Christians from other countries to meet for worship. Yet the Lord is at work and Saudis are coming to faith, sometimes abroad, sometimes through satellite TV and Internet material. Pray for Satan’s stronghold to be demolished.
Saudis who accept Christ as their Saviour are choosing to pick up a cross of ostracism, discrimination, harassment, and even death. They risk losing their jobs, access to education for their children, or even the right to basic utilities like water and electricity. Yet the Church flourishes under persecution, and the body of underground believers in Saudi Arabia is no exception. No one is beyond the reach of God’s hand; pray for the Saudis to have the courage to take hold of it.
• Pray for the Lord Jesus to miraculously demolish the stronghold of Islam in this nation.
